You can be more comfortable in your car if you start from Bangalore at 5.30 am to reach straight to Mysore. But enroute you have plenty to see right from start the Big Banniyan tree, the Sholay shooting spot in Ramanagara, Maddur were you can divert to go to Thalakadu Picnic spot river bed & the maddur vada to add spice to your mouth. Mandya city for Mysore pak and Srirangapattna temple. You have to be on your vehicle to see all these. Traffic is at its peak on all days which we cant help. Roads are well maintained which we have to salute the authorities. At Mysore we require a day to stay to see all places Place, Brindavan, Seesh mahal, Zoo, Chamundi, Tipu palace. All are well maintained and you can really enjoy your holiday if you plan for two / three days.

My onward journey was by train and the return was by Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC). It was my first time in both Kaveri Express and KSRTC. Felt so comfortable as the journey was air conditioned through out. The train coach I chose was 3rd class AC and I had a nice sleep throughout and wished that it could had been longer. Pantry service was good. KSRTC Bus in-charge was kind enough for helping me to reach the bus stand and waited for my arrival.

I travelled in SRM travels because it is the most popular travels in Chennai. They have a special attention over customers booked via holidayiq. Early morning ride from Chennai for three hours landed us at Chamundi hills and the Holy Chamundeshwari Temple. Chamundi Hills stood strong and tall giving away a beautiful view of the Mysore.

Chennai to Mysore about 550 K. M is approacheable on road through Hosur. The by-pass roads are laid a new and further being extended gives a tireless travel. As the road is cutting through many industrial hubs. The road is frequented by heavy vehicles. A early start from the city with a view to cross the city limit before sun rise will save time and be less traffic affected. The roads are lined with eateries and fuel station with toiler facilities one may find it difficult. Ambur specially known for Biriyani is on the way and various food courts on the way provide sumptuous food. Vellore Fort, Elagiri a hill station are on the way with some diversions. A friendly driver is always essential in such long journey.

Comfortable journey nevertheless the best. Food was ok and we just enjoyed the views. Travelling was very good with minimum time as this is a non stop service. It stops at Bangalore and then Mysore. Big glass windows to enjoye the scenic views makes the journey pleasant.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
